Soakin' It In Rocky Mountain Soap

0 comments


Recently, I've been enjoying the occasional baths - it's such a great way to get yourself out of the storm and just enjoy the calm.
 After a crazy week, this is what I always look forward to.

I'm so happy to have come across Rocky Mountain Soap Company* because their products uses only 100% natural ingredients which is something I'm very particular with now as my skin reacts to crazy chemicals. I'm particularly in love with their wellness bombs because each colour represents a different therapeutic benefit and you can use it according to your needs.

You can choose from:

SERENITY (PINK) - bergamot and rose geranium that soothes anxiety and boost positivity.
VITALITY (YELLOW) - cardamom, coriander and black pepper that stimulate and reenergize.
STRESS AWAY (BLUE) - sweet orange and lavender that soothe tension and helps relax the mind.

My favourite out of the three is definitely the Serenity wellness bomb because the scent really gives out a relaxing sensation. The hint of floral and tea really puts the bathing moment to another stress free level. 

Another thing I really love about these wellness bombs is the aesthetic. I love the simple square block look as it's so pretty on its own. I like to leave it on top of my bathroom vanity to give out a relaxing aura and great reminder to have the weekly soak. Now, my muscles are not as tensed and my mind is ready to start fresh for the new week ahead.

Social Media Struggles

0 comments



I hear this a lot and I feel it at times, is that Social Media can get depressing.
It's true, being in this industry where you weigh heavily on social media can be overwhelming and heavy on the mind. Constantly seeing different beautiful posts and trying to catch up to it is like inception, one after another - never ends. 

I personally, had this issue a few years ago where social media was taking over my life, (still is) but it was to a point where I felt I wasn't good enough, comparing my life with others, and constantly felt depressed. It was like a roller coaster ride where amazing moments boost you up, then constantly feeling defeated and rolling back down again. 

After a few good rides, I knew this wasn't what my life was made for. 
I knew that my life had much more to it then - my phone.

So, I made up this formula in my head to think right and not let social media distract me. 
Because the truth is, I still weigh heavily on it. 

After a few good years of being much more, well "me" alongside social media. 
Here's a few tips that helped me and will hopefully help you.

 Learn to love yourself
The most important thing in life is to learn to self-love. 
When you put yourself as priority, you'll understand that nothing else matters.

Don't Compare
Why compare, when it's an ongoing never-ending cycle. 
There's absolutely nothing that makes you not as good as someone else.
Tip: If there's a certain someone that you always compare yourself to and makes you feels upset or unconfident - straight up mute it or delete it - You'll be surprise how good it'll make you feel after you ignore it until you find your way to love yourself again.

Post for the visual diary, not for the "like"
Numbers, numbers, numbers - who gives a fuck?
If you have a style, a story, a momentum.
That's all you need, not numbers.

Lastly, learn to Enjoy Life
Do things that make you happy.
Go out, take a fresh breath of air and point out three beautiful things you see. 
Learn that there's much more to life that can make you happy then just a stupid ol' phone.

Alright, well here's what helped me get through this social media crisis.
Social media was meant to share stories and be able to connect with like-minded people.

To me it's like my personal portfolio of things I love, things I do, and things I wanna do.

So Be You, Not Someone Else. 

Love you guys!

Stay Lush-ed

Ok, so I'm pretty active with keeping my face hydrated and using products to keep it from acne problem. But when it comes to body skincare, I'm seriously nothing but dry.

My skin can get so intensely dry that I flake and you can see it all over my black clothing.
I don't know, is it just me or is that weird?



Needless to say, I know I shouldn't be lazy anymore and really get it back to shape.
I was so happy when Lush* reached out to me to try out their products because I've heard nothing but wonders. And it's seriously nothing but wonders.

 I used these three products for a week everyday and my skin is as good as new!


This product seriously gave me all the refreshment I needed. 
It has a great citrusy lime scent with coarse sea salt to really dig in the exfoliating I needed.
Although it scrubs off the dead skin, it hydrates it right away with its coconut oil + avocado butter. 
My skin felt soft already even without a moisturizer.


When I opened this bottle and saw that there were lavender flowers - the aromatic feeling instantly soothed me.  The kaolin clay and almond combination instantly calmed my skin and clear away all the impurities. 



After the scrub and cleanser, my skin already felt 100% more clean and soft. But with this vanilla / banana combo lotion that smells like cookies and cream. It instantly gave me this amazing luxuriest feeling to the skin. My skin is now more plump, refreshed and so so soft + clean.


My overall experience with Lush was amazing! beyond amazing...
I love how the products are all handmade with ingredients that are specifically chosen and work actively together and are preservative-free. Their packaging is super minimal and they fully support the "go green" initiative. And each product, does as it says! Very precise. I have to say, I'm totally addicted and I'll be back for more. Thanks LUSH
